Welcome To Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
I write unbiased and honest reviews for ANY book, ANY genre, and ANY
author that are my OPINION of what I have read. I am honored to read
your work, so feel free to share with me. All I ask is that all authors follow
my policies and procedures.
Established in 2014, Amy's Bookshelf Reviews is proudly celebrating its
Please read all instructions carefully.
For more details and information (including biography) about me, click
on the Amy Shannon page of this blog. For the list of my other sites,
including social media, click on the Amy Shannon Navigation Menu.
Click on the Bookshelf Features navigation at the top of the page. I have Featured Authors (author interviews), Top 10 Books of the Year, and Top 20 authors of the year, Prolific Poets and new to 2021, Enchanting Children's books.
I DON'T WRITE REVIEWS TO GET SOMETHING IN RETURN. However, If someone wants to read my work, I gladly welcome it. If you want to read my work to write a review, let me know, and I'll provide a copy of whatever book you are interested in.
Gratuity / Donation
I do NOT charge any FEES for reviews. However, I will accept gratuities as a thank you. Sometimes I will be given a gift card for amazon as a thank you, and other times it is in the form of another type of gift (I.E signed paperback copy, etc ...). When I get a gift card, I usually save it and then use it to purchase another book, such as one that an author has requested, but it's a digital copy and "unverified" copy. (Amazon has rules of purchase for verified and verified purchases for reviews, and I follow all those). IF YOU SEND AN AMAZON GIFT CARD, IT MUST BE FROM THE U.S. SITE OR I CAN'T REDEEM IT.
With this in mind, I have set up a "DONATION" (optional only), where if anyone wishes to donate any amount of money over 1.00, these funds will be transitioned to an Amazon gift card, so I can purchase author books that would other wise be "Unverified" purchase reviews. Donation icons are on the top of this page and on the HOME page. Authors refer to this as paying it forward.
I will start from the top of my list and work my way down depending on the funds that come in. This is to help other authors who can't or don't want to supply a "purchased" copy of their book (whether as a gift or a FREE promotional book).
BLOG PROMOTION/BLOG TOURS:
Amy's Bookshelf Reviews does not participate in promotions or tours, but my Author Blog does. I've updated my FAQ (and #14 explains my new policy in detail). I do, however, review the author's book and post the review on the blog tour's date.
